Express Your Appreciation

Have you ever howled at the Harvest Moon? I have. But I think I may have eaten some bad cheese.

I'm one of those guys. When I want something, I go after it.  And if I happen to find your bubblegum and rose potpourri aroma particularly titillating, I'm gonna let you know.

You think Burt Reynolds scored Loni Anderson by twiddling his thumbs? Of course not. Heck! Hugh Hefner didn't become the world's foremost playboy by sitting idly on the sidelines. He saw what he wanted and then reached out and grabbed it! Figuratively speaking, of course. OK, probably literally in his case but you get the point.

And that point is, if you enjoy a wine with a juicy mouthfeel with a light yet electric salmon color hue, don't be shy about it. Shout it from the rooftops. Just make sure you do it at a reasonable hour, otherwise the neighbors are probably gonna be upset.

The Harvest Moon: the moon at and about the period of fullness that is nearest to the autumnal equinox.  In the legend of the Harvest moon, it is said that all full moons have their own special characteristics based primarily on the whereabouts of the ecliptic in the sky at the time of year that these moons are visible.

 

Harvest Moon Estate and Winery was founded on growing, producing and bottling world-class Russian River Valley wine in a balanced, elegant style. Our premise is that Russian River Valley Zinfandel can be just as layered and complex as any Pinot Noir or Bordeaux variety in the world and receive the same respect.  The Pitts family has grown quality grapes in the Russian River Valley since 1976. In 2000, son Randy reverse migrated from San Francisco back to Sonoma County to assume the farming responsibilities at the family's modest nine-acre ranch. In conjunction with lessons on farming by his Dad and a few viticulture/enology courses at the local junior college, Randy made a barrel of homemade Zinfandel off the ranch's back block which turned out exceptionally tasty. Quickly concluding that properly farmed and judiciously fermented, Zinfandel has great capabilities of being California's own wine nobility.  The growers-turned winemakers birthed their inaugural vintage in 2002 and look forward to making their Zinprint on the winescene for decades to come. 

 

In addition to growing Zinfandel, Harvest Moon also hand crafts small amounts of Russian River Valley Gewürztraminer, Pinot Noir and Dry Creek Cabernet Sauvignon.
